I can't believe I am going to make jewelry out of material. I have done the beads, metal, glass, paper and clay so I guess this is the next step. I am always ready for a challenge. This book has so many great projects with excellent instructions so in I go. It will be more inexpensive since I have a lot of old clothing to use. Thanks for introducing me to yet another new craft.
